April 16, Australian media published a report entitled “Canberra prepares for the Taiwan Conflict as tensions escalate”, saying that preparations within the Australian government had been “dramatically upgraded” in response to possible military action in the Taiwan Strait. The report quoted sources as saying that in response to the worst-case scenario of a possible conflict between the United States and China over Taiwan, the Australian government may send military forces to cooperate with U.S. operations, and is currently discussing the extent and extent of assistance. So does Australia have the strength to meddle in the Taiwan issue? What would happen if the Australian government interfered in China’s internal affairs? Stay tuned for the China Voice Defense Time and Space One South Military Forum.
In a podcast released recently by the Australian National University, Michael Goldman, the temporary charge d’affaires of the US Embassy in Australia, revealed that the US was working with Australia on a so-called “strategic plan” to consider a joint response to a possible “Taiwan conflict”. Professor One South, Australia is located in the southern hemisphere, between the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Geographically, it is very far away from Taiwan, as some netizens say, it can be described as “the wind horse and cattle are out of reach”. Why is Australia so actively involved in the Taiwan issue?
Australia’s territory is surrounded by the sea, does not border any country, not only does not border other countries on land, sea adjacent countries are also very few, it is very little pressure on homeland security. But it is strange that Australia has been involved in almost all military operations since the 19th century. Like the Boer War in South Africa, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, it was all involved. The Gulf War, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, it was also involved. Although Australia’s military strength is not so strong, the threat is not so great, but it is particularly caretaker, it is like a wolf, often lying on the wolf’s body, wolf bite who, it follows bite who, wolf eat who’s meat, it also goes up to eat who’s meat. Australia likes to play that role.
We can say clearly that Australia plays such a role, and we don’t care about it at all, we don’t have to see how serious it is. To be clear, Australia is a “poor listening” and a “follow-up” to the United States, how much power can it pose a threat to China’s reunification? Does China have to look at Australia’s face when it completes the reunification? It doesn’t have to dream, it’s not that strong, it’s not that strong, it’s not that hanging, we don’t have to care if it doesn’t get involved in the Taiwan issue. If it insists on getting involved, it will only do more damage to Australia itself, and that can only be the result.
In fact, it is no accident that Australian public opinion has been speculating about the so-called “Taiwan-China conflict” in recent times. In a speech on April 12th Mr Pyne, Australia’s former defence minister, touted “10 years or war in the Indo-Pacific region”, saying Australia would be involved and declaring that “Taiwan could be the next tipping point”. On April 15th Angus Campbell, commander-in-chief of the Australian Defence Force, told a dialogue meeting in India that Australia insisted on continuing to promote peaceful dialogue because of the “catastrophic impact” of a war over Taiwan. Professor OneAn, what should we think of Australia’s contradictory hypocrisy?
Some politicians and military figures in Australia always feel that Australia is the protagonist of international politics. In this regard, there is no need for us to take care of it. Many people in Australia have an obvious characteristic, that is, they believe in white supremacy, and they always feel that Anglo-Saxon whites and Christian whites should be the leaders of the world. So, on the surface, these people seem to love peace very much and want to stop a war. Actually, it can be seen from their hypocritical words that their goal is that the white-dominated world cannot be disturbed. The white man is the master of the world, and other people are nothing more than the belongings of the world. This group of people in Australia are entrenched white supremacists.
I remember visiting Australia in 2012 and there were a few professors at the Australian National University and the Australian Defence Academy who told us how the Asia-Pacific region was doing. Later, we said, unceremoniously, Australia is located in Australia, is not an Asia-Pacific country at all, what right does it have to point fingers at the Asia-Pacific countries? As soon as we looked tough, their attitude softened immediately. So, for some Australians, we need to have a good understanding of the typical infighting, this kind of person can not give them too much good face. And don’t think that friendship can empathize with them, or by exporting economic benefits can soften them, no, they take our interests, take advantage of our cheap, still return to scold us, return to restrict us.
So we need to be on high alert for those in Australia and respond effectively. First of all, they talk about the half-day Taiwan Sea like this, we do not need to respond at all. Secondly, let them realize that if Sino-Australian relations deteriorate, it will inevitably be a comprehensive deterioration, not only political deterioration, but also economic, scientific and technological, study abroad and tourism. They can’t expect, on the one hand, to make more money Chinese from the economy and tourism, including attracting people to study in Australia, and to make more money and cheaper Chinese, on the other hand, to be Chinese. They need to know that any provocation against China must come at a price. I think that we should learn from some western countries, those who violate me, those who infringe on me, those who harm my sovereign interests, we must not forget, we must return to our teeth. We must do this in order to truly maintain the balance between China and Australia and the two countries, so that they can feel that if they do intervene in the Taiwan Strait issue, it will only bring them disaster, not welfare.
But Australia appears to have elaborated on its interference in China’s internal affairs. A former Australian defense official said that in the event of a conflict in the Taiwan Strait, the Australian military’s options include deploying anti-aircraft destroyers, working with U.S. aircraft carrier strike groups, deploying Collins-class submarines to contain the Chinese navy, and sending maritime reconnaissance aircraft, aerial refueling aircraft, “wedge tail” early warning aircraft and “Super Hornet” fighter jets to coordinate with U.S. military operations at bases in Guam, the Philippines and Japan. So can Australia’s current military might really sustain its delusions?
If, as Australian public opinion has said, the future outbreak of the Taiwan Strait conflict, Australia wants to rush to the front line of the conflict, if it has this ergonose, this power, this courage, good! Then let it come, let it walk in the front line of conflict, whether in the air, or at sea, underwater, it is rushed to the front line, even if it has the courage. It can fulfill that promise, not just talk big, but take out its military action, and then we can fight. I said, that’s our response to Australia. It doesn’t flash back, it doesn’t hide behind Americans all the time. Aren’t you heroic? Isn’t it necessary to maintain regional order? Then come to the front line and try it. Australia’s so-called “hawks” want them to do it and not “empty the gun” there all the time.
In recent years, the Australian government’s policy towards China has led to deteriorating Sino-Australian relations to freezing point, a sharp decline in trade between the two countries, and the Australian economy has been in its worst economic downturn in nearly 30 years. In response, senior Australian Morrison government officials have repeatedly asked for dialogue with China, hoping to resume trade between China and Australia. But if we want to really restore Sino-Australian trade relations, we should show sincerity, rather than do something that hurts Sino-Australian relations frequently. The Taiwan issue concerns China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, china’s core interests, and there is no room for compromise. Therefore, there are comments that if Australia on the Taiwan issue to China, it will be “annihilation” for Australia. What do you think of this?
We must make Australia’s adventurous politicians pay enough. We don’t make threats, we just let them take care of themselves, let them know they’re definitely not cheap, and if they think they can take advantage, try it. They’re threatening us, we’re not threatening them, and if they dare to come to the front line, show them how cheap they can end up. I don’t think it’s a matter of words responding, it’s a question of ability. So they’re making false threats, but we’re not threatening, and if we meet in a real conflict in the future, we’re sure to impress Australia with our strength and actions. Now that they have made such a political choice, they must pay the price.
